Have you thought about going carry-on only for your next trip? I used to overpack SO BADLY for each trip and I still struggle with that, but my husband has encouraged me to try leaving my larger checked bags behind. Ever since I’ve gone with his suggestion of packing in a carry-on only, our trips have been much more efficient and we have loved spending less time in airports. No more waiting forever at baggage claim, struggling to roll heavy bags down cobblestone streets or lugging them up long stairwells! As far as my carry-on bag of choice, I have been quite pleased with the versatility of the Pakt One and below you can find my review of it (with my husband playing bag model).
As you see in the video, I particularly adore the TSA pouch for going through security more efficiently – what a brilliant idea to stow everything in one area quickly. The bag has several separate interior and exterior compartments which ensure your belongings will stay organized and secure. I like that it comes with a zippered laundry bag to keep your dirty clothes separate in your bag as well – it even includes a mini pouch in the laundry bag for a few coins. The designers (Thank you Malcolm and The Minimalists) thought of everything and it feels like they are in touch with what I need to stay well organized as a minimalist traveler.
Note: I was gifted this bag but all opinions are honest and my own.
